White Room By Cream (1968)

Cream ruled the progressive rock FM airwaves from 1967 through 1969. Their albums were prized by psychedelic and blues rock fans alike. This supergroup formed the first rock power trio and played extensive “live” jams.

One Cream track I played often on my hi-fi system was  “White Room“. The song originally appeared on the US release of their double album Wheels of Fire in July 1968 and then was released as a single in September 1968. Wheels of Fire was the first platinum-selling double album. Jack Bruce wrote the song along with poet Pete Brown.

I especially love Eric Clapton’s wah-wah pedal on this track along with the kick of  Ginger Baker slamming those skins in animated fashion while seated behind the drum kit.
